He has no name. He always wears a hat, even in bed
11 October 1999 | by VincentMSee all my reviews

He always wears a hat,even in bed after his operations in a mental hospital.

All he wants is a place to live but the huge city of St Petersburg is as cold and unwelcoming as it was to the characters of Gogol and Dostoyevsky. Nobody wants to know him except a blind beggar with a donkey and an aristocratic woman turned prostitute.

Superb black and white photography. Unlike most American films, a trim 86 minutes long - less is certainly more in this case.
